Size - 4 1/2" X 3"
This fun intricately printed ornament features the A16 logo from the late 70s and throughout the 80s. This version of the logo is part of the "The Mountains are Calling" collection and frames the iconic Mt. Whitney whose peak stands at 14,508' elevation. The base of this unique ornament has been created from a piece of log salvaged from one of the A16 shops shortly after the physical stores were closed. It was hand made and beautifully finished with care by John D. Mead. Whether you give it as a gift or keep it for yourself, we hope it also serves to inspire all who see it to start or continue to step out of their comfort zone and as John Muir wrote, "Climb the Mountains and Get Their Good Tidings."
This item is made from a full round log and has been repurposed from a rail from a custom made shelving rack once used in an A16 shop. Because of this, each item is unique and you should expect to find certain natural and other blemishes including splitting and other natural defects in the wood. If you're lucky, you may see small holes were a nail once rested. If only the log slice could talk. It would tell you about it's life in a forest in NW Montana, it's move to SoCal, and all the fun it had literally hanging out at A16 for many a year.
